This online Zoom class will look at the logistics and business of grazing solar arrays with sheep. Shepherds can get paid to graze solar arrays for the purpose of keeping the foliage below the level of the panels. Good grazing principles still apply and there are things to consider like fencing, water, moving animals and the timing of lambing. Join us to learn more about it from experienced grazers, Lewis Fox and Niko Kochendoerfer of Taconic End Sheep, LLC. Lewis and Niko own 400 Katahdin ewes in VT and operate Taconic End Sheep LLC. The flock grazes solar sites in the Northeast between May and October and moves back to VT for the Winter and lambing season.
